Tasting Note:

Citrus, orange marmalade and honeysuckle aromas. Richly flavored with plenty of fresh acidity, there are lovely botrytis flavors leading to a generous finish.

*Barrel Sample* This almost dry wine is full of botrytized fruit tones. Well balanced, it is likely to turn into a rich, dense wine as it matures, with ample acidity that shines on the finish.

The pale lemon colored 2016 Doisy-Vedrines is a little closed to begin, giving way to notes of lemonade, grapefruit, white peaches and yuzu with wafts of ginger, honeycomb and crushed rocks. The palate is wonderfully elegant and refreshing with delicate citrus and mineral layers and a lively citrus lift to the finish.

The 2016 Doisy-Védrines is precise, understated and gracious. Candied orange peel, crème brulee, wild flowers, passion fruit and tangerine are all delineated nicely. The 2016 is deep and resonant on the palate, yet it also retains quite a bit of brightness. Readers who prefer the more understated side of Sauternes will find much to admire.

Based in Barsac, and has that wonderful spicy tight minerality of a Barsac. A really late harvest this year, right through til the end of October. This has such a beautiful balm yet again for me lacks some pep. It's not a 2007 or 2001 or 2011. But it's gorgeous. The texture of these wines is so crazily seductive and the power and intensity of toasted blood orange slices is stunning, but it would benefit from a lime soaked twist.

A focused and forward style, offering a mix of peach, mango and flan notes lined with subtle ginger and marzipan accents. An almond cream echo lines the finish. Best from 2022 through 2036. 3,750 cases made.

Tons of candied citrus and some floral honey character here. Not as lush as some Sauternes, but more lively and charming than most and the bright finish is long. This is food-friendly – think blue cheese and pate. Drink or hold.
